Coming Soon Trailers: Bill & Ted Face the Music.

New Mutants comes out too…but, c’mon. It’s Bill and Ted time, folks.

Fox’s New Mutants is clearly laboring under the most hellacious movie production curse since Jodorosky’s Dune. I’ve been waiting for this movie for more than three years worth of pushed release dates…and it finally releases during a pandemic, in-theater only, AND in the same release window as Bill & Ted 3. Sorry, New Mutants, this is a movie fight you are going to lose badly.

Just ask Death. These guys cannot be beat!

For those who looking for something to see other than the triumphant return of Wyld Stallyons:

  1. The door is over there, please see yourself out.
  2. There’s plenty of other options on VOD this weekend, you poor, sad creature.
